    I just picked up three die sets today. I got two RCBS sets and a Hornady set for 75 bucks. The RCBS sets are both two die rifle sets, one in .25-06 and the other in .243 Win and they neck size only. The Hornady set is a three die setup for .38/.357. it is a New Dimension Custom Grade dieset. It has a titanium nitride insert in the sizing die. Did I get a good deal? These are all used but they look good.

    Sounds like you got a great deal. I picked up a set of 30-30 rcbs and they cost me 30.00 for one set.

    I juste looked at a online seller and the .25-06 set like I got is 50 bucks new. I think hals price for slightly used dies ain't bad!

    Just remember that if you neck size, that should be done on casings that have been fire formed in the same rifle that they will be fired from. Not to be shared.

    Yep. My .25-06 has fired every piece of brass I have for it. It is a single shot btw so neck sizing should be all I'll need for it. I plan to get a .243 for the kids to shoot and it will probably be a single shot also.
